We are all Wanderers

This card took me a little while - I couldn't get the embossing to work on the vellum, until it dawned on me to use my detail embossing powder. I printed the quote onto the vellum, then heat embossed it in Queen's Gold. The image is a clipart sample from Dover and the papers are Bohemian Threads by Kaiser. The oval behind the woman is calico, frayed a little.

I made this for a competition, the theme of which was Vintage. That is why I have distressed the edges of the paper. Normally I find damaging the paper in this way quite "distressing", but I am getting used to it, slowly. I usually like my edges to be nice and crisp. :-)
